If you follow Pen N' Paperflowers on Facebook or The Pastry Pedestal™ on facebook...
You'll recognize these photos I shared last week...

I mentioned these would be perfect for a ballerina party...
Afterall...
the trimming I picked up from JoAnn's resembles a little tutu...
doesn't it?

But then....
after creating this Carousel-Themed birthday party invitation for a customer...

I immediately thought of how perfect
these would be for that party too!
Especially if you wrap The Pastry Pedestal rods with some pink ribbon to mimic the pole of the Carousel horse...

SO cute!!


What you'll need to recreate this look:
• The Pastry Pedestal™ Starter Kit (12 lucite rounds, 12 lucite rods and 12 rubber rings)
• white and pink petit fours or petite pastry of your choice. (store bought or homemade)
• pink fabric trim from JoAnn's
• white paper doily (like these)
• pink and white polka dot wrapping paper (or coordinating paper of your choice)
• styrofoam square or rectangle (similar to this from Hobby Lobby)
• double-stick tape

Directions:
2. Cut pink trim to fit around perimeter of The Pastry Pedestal round.
3. Use double-stick tape (folded in half lengthwise) to wrap and secure trim to the edge of The Pastry Pedestal Round.  
4. Wrap styrofoam with wrapping paper. (Just as you would a gift).
5. Poke a hole in the center of doily using a toothpick.
6. Place doily on wrapped styrofoam base and insert The Pastry Pedestal, (already assembled and decorated), through the pre-punched hole in the doily.
7. Use a toothpick to poke a hole in the bottom center of your petite pastry of choice.
8. Push petite pastry onto The Pastry Pedestal rod to secure.
9. Repeat steps 5 through 8 until you are satisfied with your display.

I hope you feel inspired to dress up The Pastry Pedestal for your next event.
The endless assortment of trims available make it easy to change up the look SO easily!!


KEEPiNG iT REAL
I was going to photograph a cluster of these together...
but after realizing the petit fours had a rough ride home due to poor packaging from the bakery...
I could only salvage one to photograph.
(and even that one was questionable...if you look closely)...
But hey...
you get the idea...
right?! *wink*
